It's awful hard to find a job
On one side the government,
the other the mob
Hey, hey ain't that right
The workin' man's in
for a hell of a fight.

Oh, this country
sure looks good to me
But these fences are
comin' apart at every nail.

Way up on the old dew line
Some of the boys were feelin' fine
A big light flashed across the sky
But somethin' else went slippin' by
Meanwhile at the Pentagon
The brass was a wonderin'
what went wrong.

Oh, this country
sure looks good to me
But these fences are
comin' apart at every nail.

Hey hey, ain't that right
The workin' man's in
for a hell of a fight.

Oh, this country
sure looks good to me
But these fences are
comin' apart at every nail.

You used to be a partner in crime
Now you say you ain't got the time

Gotta get serious, gotta plan
Gotta pass those entrance exams
Oh my God
It's senior year
All you care about is your career

It's a Life Sentence
It's a Life Sentence
It's a Life Sentence
It's a Life Sentence

You're squelching your emotions
All you talk about is old times
You don't do what you want to
But you do the same thing everyday

No sense of humor
But such good manners
Now you're an adult
You're boring

The walls are closing in
You stayed too long in school
I'd rather stay a child
And keep my self-respect
If being an adult
Means being like you

Are you really you you you
You you you you you you
Are you really you?
No

You're a chained-up dog fenced in a yard
Don't see much, you can't go far
Pace and froth, you're getting sick
Run too fast and it'll snap your neck

You say you'll break out
But you never do
You're just another ant in the hill
That's your Life Sentence

It's the dawn of the day and I'm crashed and I'm smashed
As it is I'm feelin' like my chips are cashed
All of my clothes strewn all over the room
The crisis at hand is I'm all out of zoom

[Chorus:]
I got the sunlight blues
I can't find my shoes
The only thing on TV
Is the Good Morning News

The tricks of the night
Keepin' me in a daze
Open a bottle and I'll pull down the shades
Glance in the mirror
Back into bed
Forget that it's day, time to party again

Burt Bacharach The Blob

Beware of the blob, it creeps
And leaps and glides and slides
Across the floor
Right through the door
And all around the wall
A splotch, a blotch
Be careful of the blob

(Repeats 3x)

Thin Lizzy -Didn't I

Well, I thought I could make you cry, oh didn't I?
I didn't think that I would miss you, ah, did you, did you true?
And I told you before, when you walked out that door
That I would not love you any more, I cannot cope any more

Well, I thought you'd never lie, why didn't I?
I didn't think that you'd be untrue, well, did you, did you too?
And I've told you before, when you'd walk out that door
That I would not cope any more, I do not have you any more

I thought I could make you cry and I tried now, didn't I?
I didn't think that I would miss you, but it wasn't true, I do
And I told you before, a million times or more
That when you'd walk out that door
I would not love you any more, I do not love you any more

I lied, now didn't I? Oh, didn't I?
There are people in this town, that say I don't give a damn
But the people in this town, they never could understand
Oh, they never could understand

I thought I could make you cry and I tried, now didn't I?
Didn't I try, didn't I?
I didn't think that I would miss you, but it wasn't true, I do, I do
And I told you before that you'd open up my sores

And you'd leave me here with scars
I cannot take it any more, oh, don't hurt me no more
I cried and I cried, now didn't I?
Why didn't I try? Why didn't I?

Johnny Winter – Memory Pain

Serve me right to suffer
Serve me right to be alone
Hey, to be alone

Lawd, serve me right to suffer
Oh! Serve me right to be alone
Hey, to be alone

You know I'm still livin' with a memory
Of the days that's passed and gone
The days that's passed and gone

Every time I see a woman
Hey, hey, it make me think of mine
Yeah

Oh, every time I see a woman
Oh, It make me think of mine
Make me think of mine

But the way she treat me
Lord, I just can't keep from cryin'
Oh, can't keep from cryin'
Oh yeah

Oh
Serve me right to suffer
Oh
Serve me right to be alone
Oh yeah

When I get home in the evenin'
Hey, hey, my woman would be gone
Yes she would be gone

Oh, when I get home in the evenin'
Hm, my old lady would be gone
Oh! she would be gone

When I get up in the mornin'
Her lights would just be comin' home
Just be comin' home

Oh yea
Look out now
Yea
Yea

Oh, serve me right to suffer
Hey, hey, serve me right to be alone
Serve me right to be alone

Hm, serve me right to suffer
Oh, serve me right to be alone, uh
Yes to be alone

'Cause I'm still livin' with a memory
Of the days that's passed and gone
The days that's passed and gone

In memoriam Drs P, Swiss word wizard of the Dutch word, lyricist, pianist and singer:

And'ren worden leerling-stikster, bloemenschikster, nageltikster
Degenslikster, ketelbikster, predikster in Medemblik.
Gatenprikster, kuitenflikster, perziken-op-sap-inblikster
Maar ik blijf een bonenpikster tot mijn allerlaatste snik!

Thin Lizzy – Dear Heart

Man with the broken heart filled with lead
How he suffered and he fought for what he believed
The fighting is over now, the man is dead
A martyr for the cause

Dear heart
I wish that you could see
Dear heart
You mean the world to me

Man with the golden arm, his face gone pale
Taken too much junk, he's gone over the rail
Breathes out a sigh and his body wails
He's gonna land in trouble, land in jail

He'd give his life, he'd give his everything
To reach that goal and take that last and final fling
But I guess it's just another story
In the greatest story ever told

Dear heart
I wish that you could see
Dear heart
You mean the world to me

Songwriters: LYNOTT, PHILIP PARRIS

It is not a good day, if you are not looking good
This is the best party that I've ever been to
Today I asked for a god to pour some wine in my eyes
Today I asked for someone to shake some salt on my life

Look, everything's spinning
(We're on the ground)
Never cheer before you know who's winning
(Don't make a sound)

Sniff the glass and let it roll around on your tongue
Let me introduce you to someone before the party is done
Someone to look to in need or in want or in war
If you give him everything, he may give you even more

This is the best party I've ever been to

Don't let me die with that silly look in my eyes

Let's impeach the President for lying
And misleading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

Who's the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
They bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war

Let's impeach the President for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones

What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government's protection
Or was someone just not home that day?

Flip - Flop
Flip - Flop
Flip - Flop
Flip - Flop

Let's impeach the president for hijacking
Our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected

Thank god he's cracking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There's lots of people looking at big trouble
But of course our president is clean.

Thank God

---NEIL YOUNG

Black Label Society - Fear

The sun that's set on our souls
All that's lost as the day is old
When the truth becomes one big lie
So low you never know when you're high

And you thought that you knew it all
Think again, in the end we all fall
When the truth becomes one big lie
So low you never know when you're high

Oh, back home
Oh, back home
Oh, the fear of being alone

The floors that rattle and shake through my head
The doors that slam that wake me in bed
When the truth becomes one big lie
So low you never know when you're high

Oh, back home
Oh, back home
Oh, the fear of being alone
Oh, the fear of being alone

Oh, the fear of being alone
Oh, the fear of being alone
Oh, the fear of being alone

As white as they come
I feel pretty dumb
They're all better than me
I think we agree

I was born with no soul
But I'm in control
Of the worlds destiny
I'm white as can be

Afraid to die, afraid to answer why
Afraid to be, afraid to act like me, or like me


As white as they come
I act pretty dumb
You know better than me
I'm sure we agree

I'm as white as the pope
Can you see there's no hope
Now why would I lie
We're all gonna die!

An empty shell, an empty heart as well
A burnt out light, a void that swallows life, swallows life...

Jail

One day, the strain
I've never felt like this before
Our lives, capsize
I've never been before my God

Why must you kneel for me?
I write for sight
One day you'll find me in the corner
More sublime
But I still never died before

Angry as now, I have never been before
Angry as now, I have never been before

I'll hurt you in places that no one will ever see...NO ONE!
In places that will hurt you for the rest of your life!

Why?
But why?
Why are you doing this?
But always like this
Look!
But... look!
But listen!

But I want to say that... that...
But I am not the kind of person that...

Stop it! Stop it!
Stop it! Do you understand?
I beg you! I beg you!

You know that you can trust only me
They will never believe you

Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me well

Be careful!

Do you remember who is the head of the family?

The teeth can say nothing without the tongue...
Because your tongue is mine! Mine! MINE!

Corrosion Of Conformity - Shelter

Once in a while
You been better listenin' to the fools for a change

I can see it in your eyes
It's the ones not like you
You despise

I'm no different than you, it's just that I do whatever I want to
That's what sets us apart I was free from the start, now your leavin'
Tell me whose heart is bleeding?

So, once in a while
You been better listenin' to the fools for a change

One comes around follows and the truth becomes harder to swallow
So, bang, bang they shoot you down
No one says a word as your body hits the ground
Oh pick her up and put her down

The crowd screams aloud "She's not breathing"
And the only hands that reaches, is the one alone
You've been cheatin' my friend
Tell me whose heart is bleeding again?

So, once in a while
You been better listening to the fools for a change

Oh once in a while
You'll be better listening to the fools

This town

This town we're in is just a
Sealed Tuna Sandwich with the wrapper glued
We get a few in every tour
I think we've played this one before.

Sky is clear tonight
Sky is clear tomorrow

A star is out
I reach for one to sparkle in my hand
A star is out
I will not touch you, I am just a man

Sky is clear tonight
Sky is clear tomorrow

- And every night I shut my eyes
So I don't have to see the light
Shining so bright
I'll dream about a cloudy sky, a cloudy sky

"Man was born to love -
Though often he has sought
Like Icarus, to fly too high.
And far too lonely than he ought
To kiss the sum of east and west
And hold the world at his behest -

To hold the terrible power
To whom only gods are blessed -
But me, I am just a man"

And every night I shut my eyes
So I don't have to see the light
Shining so bright
I'll dream about a cloudy sky, a cloudy sky

And every night I shut my eyes
But now I've got them open wide
You've fallen into my hands
And now you're burning me
You're burning me

Don't you ever listen?
Don't you ever learn?
The hand may find you
It's time to take a turn
You think this life is something strange
You're ready for another change
But don't you ever learn?
Don't you ever listen?
Don't you ever learn?
The world is on fire
Your body doesn't burn
Kill yourself before receiving
Something out of all this breathing
Don't you ever learn?

As the congregation grows
The lung of solitude deflates
To my ears the greatest sin
Feel a bit like Beethoven

Simultaneous they speak unbeknownst
Exiled to the inner voice, difference is...
He had no choice

We can't seem to find the air
To get our message through your heads
Poor respiration is sure
To keep clear communication obscure

As if I should care
As if you are listening out there

The louder you speak the more I can hear
The less I can understand
Pound on it, pound it in
To my ears the greatest sin
Feel a bit like Beethoven

Paint my lungs so silently
The darkest color of your noise
A crowd will contradict it's own audibility
Can't hear the dialogue for the voice

No one is listening
Yet ears are ringing

Ears are ringing...

In the morning I will see
What you were trying to say to me
As I respond into the sink
Need not again hear myself think

Ears are ringing...

Wax within my ears has grown
Just like the snot inside my nose
My interpretation of distorted conversation

I will kill for isolation
Sacrifice the energy
To enjoy the breath of silence
When the blood comes naturally

I have chosen to plug my nose
Before the threshold of pain has grown
Mole out from society
Survive off my soliloquy

Removed I can speak as he has
Bleeding from nose throat and ears

And I believe that before you die
You get a fraction of a second
To explore yourself
And in my life I've always wanted much more
So in my time to explore
I'll need much more

Traffic is the enemy
Traffic is the enemy
Traffic is the enemy
Traffic is the enemy

186,282 miles per second

To live longer in the subatomic sense
I must drive even faster must run even faster
Time will cease the closer I get
And on the shoulders of gods I'll surpass regret
It doesn't matter how minute the change
Because my mind is small my body is smaller
And at those speeds time is relative
And the more I understand the longer I'll live

And I believe that the key is found inside my car

Traffic is the enemy
Traffic is the enemy
Traffic is the enemy
Traffic is the enemy

186,282 miles per second

To live longer in the subatomic sense
I must drive even faster must run even faster
Time will cease the closer I get
And on the shoulders of gods I'll surpass regret
It doesn't matter how minute the change
Because my mind is small my body is smaller
And at those speeds time is relative
And the more I understand the longer I'll live

I must... go... FASTER!

What if there's no more fun to have ?
And all I've got is what I had
What if I have forgotten how ?
Cut my losses and get out now

Get out right now

There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me

It is the hardest thing to do
To watch it grow on top of you
And see you're just like everyone
No fun

There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me
There's something I don't want to see

I don't speak that language anymore
My blood is not that color anymore
My blood don't shine the same way anymore
I cannot deny it anymore

There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me
There's something I don't want to see
There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me

Weedeater - Palms And Opium

Palms and opium, my brain has come undone, my
Thoughts all turn to one, palms and opium, and
The sand, and the breeze, and the sun, goddamn
What have I done, palms and opium, blisters burn my
Tongue, my god it's too much fun, palms and opium,
And the sand, and the breeze, and the sun,
Goddamn what have I done, and the pain it
Makes me numb, palms and opium.

Say he wanna be
Shorties gonna be a Thug
Said he wanna be
One day he's gonna be
Said he's wanna be
Shorties gonna be's a Thug
Said he's gonna be
One day he gonna be
Say he wanna be
Shorties gonna be a Thug
Said he gonna be
One day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be
Shorties gonna be a Thug

He was a nice middle class nigga
But nobody knew the evil he'd do When he got a little bigger
Get off the final blaze
While puffing on a Newport
plottin' on a another way to catch a case
Was only sixteen, yet convicted as a felon
With a bunch of old niggas
But you the only one who ain't telling
I tell you it's a cold world, stay in school
You tell me its a man's world, play the rules
And fade fools, 'n break rules until we major
Blaze up, getting with hoes through my pager
Was raised up, commencing to money makin' tactics
It's getting drastic, niggas got automatics
My fingers on the trigga, Tell the lord
To make way for another straight Thug Nigga
I'm sitting getting buzzed, looking for some luv
from the homies, cuz shorty wanna be a Thug

Straight from the Hall to the Penn
Adolescent nigga scaling weight and standing Six feet Ten
He carried weight like a Mack truck
Gonna bust on some playa haters
if the mutha fuckas act tuff
Then thats when the lethal weapon with the razor
This little nigga smoking weed and getting blazed up
No one could figure, when the guns blast pull the trigga
Could take the life of a young nigga guns bigger
No mother and father, you see, the niggas all alone
Old timers my role model, the war zone
Released with this game 'til its a part of me
My heart don't beat no fear and it ain't hard to see
The future is looking dim
I'm trying to make a profit out of living in this sin
I'm in the dark getting buzzed, looking for some love
out with the homies, cuz shorty wanna be a Thug

Shorty gonna be a thug

You little bad ass nigga, to the young niggas
gotta stay sharp nigga, play your part
you got plenty of time (you bad mutha fuckas)
You only get three mistakes, then thats life, big baby (niggas craaazy)
watch the signs
Damn, you ain't but sixteen nigga?
Sixteen?!
That's a bad muthafucker

Get 'em out by Friday
You don't get paid
Till the last one's well on his way
Get 'em out by Friday
It's important that we keep to schedule
There must be no delay

I represent a firm of gentlemen
Who recently purchased this house
And all the others in the road
In the interest of humanity
We've found a better place for you
To go, go, oh, go, oh

Oh no, this I can't believe
Oh Mary, they're asking us to leave

Get 'em out by Friday
I've told you before
It's good many gone if we let them stay
And if it isn't easy
You can squeeze a little grease
And our troubles will soon run away

After all this time, they ask us to leave
And I told them we could pay double the rent
I don't know why it seemed so funny
Seeing as how they'd take more money

The winkler called again, he came here this morning
With four hundred pounds and a photograph of the place
He has found a block of flats with central heating
I think we're going to find it hard

Now we've got them
I've always said that cash
Cash, cash can do anything well
Work can be rewarding
When a flash of intuition
Is a gift that helps you excel, sell, sell, sell

Here we are in Harlow New Town
Did you recognize your block
Across the square, over there?
Sadly since last time we spoke
We've found we've had to raise
The rent again, just a bit

Oh no, this I can't believe
Oh Mary and we agreed to leave

This is an announcement from Genetic Control
It is my sad duty to inform you of a four foot
Restriction on humanoid height

I hear the directors of Genetic Control have been buying all the
Properties that have recently been sold, taking risks oh so bold
It's said now that people will be shorter in height
They can fit twice as many in the same building site
(They say it's alright)

Beginning with the tenants of the town of Harlow
In the interest of humanity, they've been told they must go
Told they must go, go, go, go

I think I've fixed a new deal, a dozen properties
We'll buy at five and sell at thirty four
Some are still inhabited
It's time to send the winkler to see them
He'll have to work some more

With land in your hand, you'll be happy on earth
Then invest in the Church for your heaven
